While everyone is aware of the many accidents that occur on roadways across Nebraska and the entire country year in and year out, few people realize that the same types of problems exist with boats on waterways. Whether it’s a small river or a wide-open lake, you’d be shocked at how many times boats collide with rocks or one another. If you have been involved in any type of boating accident, you should trust our team at Salerno & Leavitt for legal help. We have been addressing the needs of clients for years and know how to navigate the unique laws related to marine vehicles.
A great deal of boating accidents occur because of negligence on the part of one of the drivers. Boat owners go on the open waters to relax, and sometimes forget that their moments of relaxation can put people in danger if they aren’t careful. Boaters need to be as alert on the water as they are on the road, and most times, this just isn’t the case. Other times, drugs or alcohol are involved, making the drivers impaired and more likely to make mistakes.
In cases like this, you most certainly need legal counsel to address the litany of laws that have been broken. Some accidents even occur because of boat malfunctions, which can make the engine or steering not work properly. No matter how the boat accident happens, you want to make sure you have legal counsel that understands how to address it properly. We are here to help with all your boat accident concerns in Nebraska and the surrounding areas.
